I spent a weekend in Helsinki with my daughter. The location of the hotel is excellent with a metrostation and shops nearby. The room was ok, although we had some dust on the floor and the bathrooms and the furnishing start to be a bit dated. Great breakfast and friendly staff at the reception and breakfast room.

Hotel in general was nice. However, our room was not that nice. It is obvious that cleaner had visited in the room since beds were made but glasses in the bathroom were dirty. Also two wine glasses above the minibar were all greasy and dirty. We also found an old bread under the bed. This made us suspect how well the room was really cleaned.

I would defo choose the hotel for business trips and very short stays. It has everything a great hotel should have: location, great service, amazing breakfast and nice rooms. But oh man it is crowded during tourist season with a never ending flow of people checking in and out, waiting in the lobby, etc. It is also located on a narrow street and summer nights can be noisy if your windows face he street

Room tip: Ask for yard - its quiter

The location was super. Bathroom and room were nice and clean The reception woman was very humoristic and polite. Air conditioning could be better or it would be useful to be able to open the windows somehow.The breakfast room was nice and food was goog.

The hotel is well located only a few minutes from the railway station, and not much more from the bus station. Esplanadi park and market place at the sea side are close by, as well as many other Helsinki sights. Hotel is clean and comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful. Single room is not big, but enough for one person. Bed confortable to sleep in. Breakfast has good basic selection to get your stomach full in the morning.
